Coach’s Comments on Selection:
There are a few changes in the backline this week with Josh Henderson returning from illness allowing Jack Steele to revert back to his favoured full back position with Erland Oag replacing the unavailable junior Bulumakau on the wing. Leigh Tyley and Sean Yacoubian come on to the bench in place of Davie Milne and Paddy Boyer.
Tommy Spinks returns to captain the squad at number 8 after a speedy recovery from injury. Paul Cairncross retains his place in the starting line-up after an impressive individual performance last week.
Coach’s Comments on Match:
We at Glasgow Hawks are still hurting after letting a 31-17 lead go and ultimately letting a very good Currie team fight until the end and win at the death. We have regrouped this week and had an excellent week of training and are ready for the challenge of Gala.
Gala will be very physical and have some excellent individual performers throughout their squad. Gregor Hunter has been outstanding for Gala in the first half of the season and we know that we can’t afford to give him any space and time to release some very exciting outside backs.
This should be an exciting affair with both teams desperate to get a win at the start of the second half of the season.
